GURGAON: With the board exams of Class 10 students cancelled due to the Covid-19 surge, the Board of School Education Haryana (BSEH) has announced that all students will be promoted to the next class on the basis of the marks obtained in the internal assessments.

Noting that the board examinations have been cancelled in view of the exponential surge in Covid-19 case across the state, BSEH informed all the schools affiliated with the board about the promotion policy for the students. The board has decided to follow evaluation criteria of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and promote the students on the basis of marks obtained in internal assessments.

According to board officials, schools for Class 10 students reopened in December and the students had undertaken internal tests and assignments. Marks obtained in these will be calculated along with the scores of practical exams that were conducted before the lockdown was announced.
